It is a very homie style BBQ joint. The food is good and worth the stop. Chicken was better than the pork. Service was good and very quick. The fries were freshly cooked and very hot. Prices are reasonable.

The BBQ sandwiches here are great, but what is really tasty are their homemade sauces and salad dressings. We love their homemade blue cheese dressing! Highly recommend the BBQ pork sandwich and corn nuggets, too! Sweet tea is always refreshing and prices are reasonable.

We have been travelling past this restaurant daily for nearly two months and have marveled at the amount of cars in the parking lot. We finally gave it a shot for lunch. We were certainly not impressed and will not return. The service was great, the waitress was quite polite, and our meal was served promptly, but the chicken and... More

Saw a few of these while driving around Lake City. It's lunchtime thought we'd try it. Had pork sandwich on garlic toast and onion rings unsweetened tea. Fantastic good service too!

I eat here once a week for lunch, not a fan of the steaks or burgers, a little commercial and thin for me, and often over cooked for the size. But their BBQ is good, esp. if you like a less sweet sauce (although they do have a sweet version and on Friday's they do a sweeter one). But the... More

I drove up and saw almost every truck in Lake City parked there for lunch, so thought it must be the place to go! And, I was right. Tammy, my waitress took excellent care of me. I had the sliced brisket and it was excellent. Had a burger the next day...that I would not recommend. But will eat here again... More

I found this place and am always up for a BBQ joint on the road! Ordered the Ken's Ribs and also got the green beans and potato salad....Patato salad and green beans were about as good as they can be! They actually saved the meal for me in all honesty! The ribs were luke warm, chewy and kinda blah....I was... More
